And now we're getting into the "Who?" picks. The good players whose stats don't exactly stick out, meaning you won't hear much of them unless you follow the team (or just are into depth players).

It's a fun way to learn more about the league, though.

He's already the best defensive player on the wings blueline, and I think it's a pretty clear margin too. Excellent selection. Vlasic clone.

The little bit of hockey I did watch last year involved a lot of Detroit. I really really like Dekeyser.

Someone should figure out a way on nhl 15 to create a 12 team league, plug in the players and simulate the season for the hell of it.

I think the biggest factor that wouldn't translate is coaching.

you could chose the 5 styles that you want as your defaults for the defensive, break out, forecheck, offensive set up, etc

Yeah, I was thinking about that and figured you could put the players on the team that the coach is. Wouldn't factor the AC but would be about as close as you could get.

That would be pretty neat. It'd be even neater if we could simulate Kovy's picks.

I hear Mikey rates David Moss really high; perhaps we could give him to Kovy.

In all honesty, doing both ways would be really cool. Hearing everyone's opinions on the rosters would be interesting (and also seeing the voting, whether we make it public or not). Seeing a computer sim would be also be fun, especially considering EA's amusing rating system if we use NHL 14/15.
